  1. Sorry I actually meant the choice is between the RX100 and GX9, thanks for pointing out my error
  2. That really is quite impressive. I use my Nikons though for commercial work, so can't sell them to finance other cameras, apart from I am thinking about swapping them for a Lumix S1H, which would work as a good video camera and a stills camera for commercial work. Thats still not a solution for my stock work though and I think the RX10iv which looks great is a bit big for my needs, so its still between one variation of the RX10 and the GX9, which I liike because I already have MFT lenses though nothing long, I have some great low light lenses for them for video but probably want to a
  3. Your not helping now that gives me something else to consider. so 24-70 which is what I would call a 'normal' working zoom and what I do 75% of my photography on, but yes the reach to 200mm would be considerably useful, but the 1.8-2.8 of the VA is worth considering for indoor shots, hmmm. The other option is still the GX9 and use MFT lenses, then I have lens choice, hmmm. Much more to consider
  4. Thank you Joe, yes this does help, the GX9 could well be a good option as I have MFT lenses, I would buy body only which makes it quite a reasonable price and it would compliment my GH5 quite well.
  5. Thanks, that comparison link is very useful, I will study it.
  6. Yes I was referring to the full suite, the photography plan is the one I would go for as and when I have to, for now CS6 will do me.
  7. True, but you can use the free Adobe DNG converter and still able to work on the files of the future as DNG format in CS6
  8. You are correct, I have had a while away from processing, I was of course referring to the controls on Camera RaW and in fact I hardly use Bridge. When I bought CS6 I got the education version which is heavily discounted and a very good deal and lasts forever (or at least until obsolescence). When I started editing video I made the decision to go CC as I wanted Premiere Pro as well as PS and Lightroom and a few of the other programs were useful on occasion, this was also available on an education discount and so I went with the full CC suite. I was a bit gutted then to find that
  9. Thanks, it seems all versions are still available on Amazon, I will have to do some research.
  10. Well I don't think you will be able to convert future RAW files as Adobe won't update Camera RAW, but then I will have to use DNG Converter and work directly in DNG I guess. This is what I used to do when buying a new camera and waiting for the updates.
  11. In fact I see the MKVII at over £1000, a MK VI at £800 and this at under £300 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Advanced-1-0-Type-F1-8-4-9-DSC-RX100/dp/B008CNMZDW
  12. Thanks guys, is there much difference between the Mk VI and the MK VII, there is quite a price difference
  13. Yes Bridge actually does pretty much the same as LR with most of the same controls for the RAW editing, it is free with PS. Not the same when it comes to cataloging though.
  14. For images other than stock that were for print or magazines or whatever, I used to open in LR and edit the RAW, convert to DNG and edit in PS, I would archive an edited Tiff and a DNG. The Jpeg was not usually kept. For stock I usually keep the RAW (or DNG) and the Jpeg but don't save a Tiff. Since leaving Adobe CC and reverting to CS6 I have lost LR so am using Bridge for the conversion
  15. I have been using a combination of D800 and D4s as my main working cameras along with the 24-70, 70-200 and occasionally the 14-25 f2.8's. A bulky combination for sure but I am more self conscious these days when shooting on the street and grab shots in public buildings etc is to me anyway a bit of a non starter. I also have a GH5 which I use for video and a selection of MFT lenses, though nothing on the long side as yet as I haven't needed for video and can occasionaly stick a Nikkor on a Metabones for that, but even that is quite large really. I could do with a very sm
  16. Well I'm only an occasional on the forums but just been made redundant at work so going to be doing more stock hopefully and am going to the show, not sure which day yet but be happy to meet up and say hi, if you'll have me 🚻 (too many emojis dammit) By the way I don't see any red arrows
  17. Thank you for your help, although I have already posted that the issue is sorted , I couldn't change the RAM, that was the problem but was because I was using PS in 32 bit instead of 64 bit. Anyway thank you for going to the trouble.
  18. Cheers Chuck, not sure when or how long I have been uploading images saved as progressive, but I will stop that right now.
  19. MDM - Yeh not sure where I got that from either, maybe a false memory. Anyway, it seems I was on 32 bit PS there are 2 versions on my PC, not sure why, but I have now put the 64 bit version on my taskbar which has 228248MB available so hopefully this has sorted it. Thanks for your help
  20. I can save it as Baseline, but I'm not sure how that affects the image as far as Alamy is concerned, I seem to remember reading years ago you should always save as Progressive for Alamy?
  21. Processes aren't using much so I don't think thats the problem only 9% total memory
  22. Thanks Chuck, yes Im in the UK. Good idea I may try ringing tech support tomorrow if I don't get anywhere. Harry, thanks for your input, you could well be right about steering me to CC, however I left CC a while back and re-installed CS6 because I did have the education package, but they knock you off that after 12 months and I just cannot justify the price, not when I already have CS6 and now use DaVinci Resolve so noit going back to Premiere Pro. Thanks for the link , I will check it out. Having had a quick look though there is nothing using much, a total of 9% memory for ev
  23. I use CS6 for editing my images, bring them in via Bridge for the RAW edit, open in CS6, process and then save. I have always saved the Jpegs as progressive. After a while off photo editing and a new more powerful PC running Windows 10 I am having issues with CS6 giving the error "Could not save as there is not enough memory (RAM). Try saving without optimisation or as a baseline JPEG." I have googled this and tried the Regedit fix with Overridephysicalmemory and after closing and re-opening CS6 that works for a few saves and then reverts back to the problem. I have also today h
